"The Bigger The Fool (the Harder The Fall)" as written by Jim Rushing and Larry E. Cordle....
Her long legs looked like trouble
As she sasheyed through the door
And my mind flashed a warning sign
That I chose to ignore
For the prize I thought I could win
The risk seemed mighty small
The bigger the fool the harder the fall

Fell in love in the heat of passion
Oh, but passion has it's price
Under all that beauty
Beat a heart that was made of ice
God knows as far as I could see she didn't have a flaw
But the bigger the fool the harder the fall

I said a woman to keep
The softer the skin
The sweeter the love
The more bitter the end
Well, one lesson I've learned that applies to all
The bigger the fool the harder the fall

One day she was lovin' me
The next day she was gone
And I became another verse
To a lonesome heartbreak song
Now that I've learned to face the truth
The words stick in my craw
Well, the bigger the fool the harder the fall

I said a woman to keep
The softer the skin
The sweeter the love
The more bitter the end
Well, one lesson I've learned that applies to all
The bigger the fool the harder the fall
The bigger the fool the harder the fall
